Notes/Commercial Description:
Our interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer. Brewed with a generous portion of wheat and spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel, this beer is fruity, refreshing and slightly cloudy in appearance.

I would say that this is the best Witbier I have had thus far. The spices and citrus fruit flavor is well balanced and the mouthfeel is nice and light. Maybe a little rough up front, but when you start to take in all of the flavors its really nice. It's a good summer beer and one that can be paired with all kinds of cuisine.

On tap at Mussel Bar in Atlantic City, served in a flute on 8/7/12.

Pour: Hazy straw yellow with two fingers of white fluffy head. Head leaves a little lacing.

Smell: Clove, coriander, lemon rind, and lots of Belgian yeast.

Taste: Belgian yeast are driving this car, with lemon zest and clove spiciness.

Mouthfeel: this one is super refreshing, and very drinkable.

Overall: Once of the few witbiers I actually enjoy.
